We welcome new players at open gym and our seasonal leagues. Check out the information below or Contact Us if you have questions.

Open Gym

Open Gym is our version of pick-up/scrimmage night where we run 5 on 5, eight minute games. These nights are open to players of all skill levels, unless otherwise noted on the calendar.

Come in with a reversible jersey (or dark and light shirts), sign a waiver, pay $5 and you're good to go! One of our Lambda Basketball Board of Directors will be at the score table to help you get started.
